DOVER, N.H. (AP) — Authorities in Maine and Massachusetts are being asked to watch their shores for the body of a University of New Hampshire student believed to have been killed a week ago.
Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth “Lizzi” Marriott, of Westborough, Mass., vanished Oct. 9 after attending a night class in Durham. Seth Mazzaglia was charged Saturday with second-degree murder in her death.
Her body hasn’t been found. Authorities have been searching the waters around Peirce Island in nearby Portsmouth.
The 29-year-old Mazzaglia is an actor and martial arts instructor. He didn’t speak during a brief arraignment Monday. His court-appointed attorneys didn’t object to the prosecutor’s request that he be held without bail.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young has said Mazzaglia and Marriott “were familiar with each other.”
